A Louisiana man was sentenced to three years in prison for tampering with physical evidence after he proceeded to eat marijuana during a traffic stop by a Rusk County jury.

Raymond Riley, 64, of Baton Rouge has been a fugitive from justice since making bond in the 2005 case. Riley failed to appear in a number of different trial settings and was only returned to Rusk County when a routine traffic stop in a another jurisdiction showed outstanding warrants for felony failure to appear.

Riley was stopped in 2005 by deputy turned prosecutor Morgan Biggs and in the dash-cam video of the stop, Riley is seen eating a small bag of marijuana. He can also be seen, on tape, throwing heroin out the window.

Riley was booked into the Rusk County Jail.
